Oliver's Taranga Chica Mencia Rosé 2015
Gee I enjoyed drinking this. It's just so appealing and so sessional. There's a great fruit presence wrapped up by savoury notes.
Sure the colour can suggest that this is sweet but not so much. As Oliver's Taranga winemaker Corrina Wright says, "This is a fun, dry Rosé." Yep, sure is.
To be precise, this was made by the cellar door ladies - the chicas! I can't help but think Cindi Lauper's lyrics were ringing out loud in the winery as the ladies just wanted to have some fun.
Red currant and red berries hit the spot with a dusting of black pepper to finish. Refreshingly delish. A bit of fun and a great drink, isn't that what we look for in a wine?
One for the trolley, yes please.
